Mentioning NX may have been to stop rumors that the next Nintendo console was a sleep monitor

sleep Speculation has run rampant as people try to guess what the next Nintendo console will be. Amidst harsh criticism of the Wii U platform, Nintendo said development of it's next console was underway. I don't know if the criticism really pushed the announcement, but they admitted that NX as coming.

Anyone who has played throughout a few of gaming's generations knows that the next console is usually underway shortly after the current console's release. Before NX was alluded to, Nintendo filed several patents for some sort of sleep monitor. people flipped out and began speculating that the Wii U had forced Nintendo to delve into other markest and abandon gaming.

Of course this wasn't the case, but even after all these years, folk don't seem to realize that Nintendo plays by different rules. They don't compete in the traditional sense. They innovate and more often than not it puts them out in front of the competition.

I'm sure if the going gets tough, they can go back to their roots and release: Sleep: The Quality of Life First Person Sleeper Roll Playing Game.
